Who is doing environmental education in Massachusetts?

What is the purpose of this survey?
To understand the state of Environmental Education (hereafter EE) in Massachusetts by gathering information about the who, what, where, when, and how of EE across the Commonwealth. We seek to learn about the providers and beneficiaries of EE so that, as an organization, MEES can better serve educators, policy-makers, and communities through resources, events, and advocacy.

Who should take this survey?
We seek one response per organization, and as such, we expect that an Executive Director, Director of Education, or equivalent, may be best suited to respond on behalf of the organization. Independent contractors and sole proprietors are also welcome to respond to this survey. If you have questions about who should take this survey, contact info@massmees.org.

How are you defining Environmental Education (EE)?
For this survey, EE, as defined by the Environmental Protection Agency, is a process that allows individuals to explore environmental issues, engage in problem solving, and take action to improve the environment. As a result, individuals develop a deeper understanding of environmental issues and have the skills to make informed and responsible decisions. Examples of EE include topics such as environmental science, natural history, stewardship, recreation/adventure, farm/agriculture/food, environmental justice, etc. But we prefer an inclusive approach, so if this definition is too limiting, ignore it and fill out the survey anyway!
